Superior temporal gyrus is a gyrus in the temporal lobe. The superior surface is divided into three areas:[1]

  1. Planum polare
  2. Tranverse temporal gyri
  3. Planum temporale

Inferior to the superior temporal gyrus is usually the superior temporal sulcus. Sometimes the superior temporal sulcus splits into two branches with part of the superior temporal gyrus in the middle.[2]

The Harvard-Oxford Atlas parcellates the superior temporal gyrus into:

This parcellation scheme goes back to Human cerebral cortex: localization, parcellation, and morphometry with magnetic resonance imaging.
